Mentioning the Quilts of Gee's Bend in one of my earlier posts go me thinking about another exceptional American craft collective: Project Alabama. I haven't heard much about this group (headed by Natalie Chanin) since their Spring '06 collection, and was disappointed to find their website is under construction. I'm still admiring what I saw in their Bryant Park debut: traditional quilt making craftsmanship spun into timeless feminine clothing with character and soul. If anyone knows what Project Alabama is up to lately, please drop me a line!
